For me there have been no highs,just empty promises none of which have been realised.
When he came in Swann mocked the way the club was run under Wharton .
Yes Wharton did lack ambition but the club over achieved and i never once feared for its future.
After 3 years of trying to find a suitable buyer Wharton`s health forced him to sell and along came Swann .
Since then it has been a mixture of ego trip and incompetence.
Firstly running the club with the expenditure of a lower championship club and the income of a mid table league 2 club which was unsustainable.Sadly it took Swann 6 years to realise that by which time the club`s balance sheet was embarrasing.
Now he is blaming covid for everything and slashing the playing budget.
When he first came he said that if he left he would leave the club debt free.! actually believed that because i understand he did that at Gainsborough Trinity.
What he failed to tell us was that in exchange for that he would take ownership of the club`s fixed assets,an act which has signalled the end for me until he has gone assuming that there will still be a club in existence by then.
